In this Escort Max 360 reviews, we will provide you with some important info that you need to know about Escort Max 360.
· Hot K-band sensitivity
· Extensive feature set
· Superb windshield mount
· Hopelessly inept user interface
· More false alarms than Chicken Little
Based on the marketing hyperbole, the Escort Max 360 is rated as authority status in the radar detector area.
The Max 360 is contained in a black case and it is controlled by six top-mounted buttons. The 4 main buttons are called faux-aluminum and they reflect irritate mirror images to the windshield as the sun comes out. The upper building is festooned with huge graphics of model names and other trivia, they all cast reflections to the windshield.
The large windshield mount that has GPS-style includes an angle adjustment thumbscrew and a release lever. Adjustment or installation requires 2 hands. however when they are in place, it remains in the same place.
Unlike the previous mount, this version joins to the detector, and idea and not a casual process so good. It is likely the competition.
Internal Bluetooth enables the Max 360 to connect to the Escort Live app on a cellphone.
The first Escort model that has a rear radar antenna is the Max 360. Its centerpiece claimed 360-degree radar coverage.
The arrows have the value that is not clear – they mostly react to a radar alert.
Advanced features that aim to drivers that are enthusiast comprise radar signal identification. The Max 360 could be controlled to show radar frequencies for either rear or front antennas.
Delivery of this or other visual info is adjusted by the display. There is small screen that is packed densely with tiny text and images. A grand chunk of the real estate, for instance, is used mainly for displays of road speed.
We found that the arrows which have directional function is generally accurate. Pasting a radar signal often led to the behind arrow lighting up when the behind antenna spotted it. In comparison to other detectors that have a rear antenna, the Valentine One for example, we found the Escort is estimated to be more correct in its reporting. Especially in town, there is a single radar that is often reported as a threat.
Like its siblings, in a reliable way, the Max 360 lock most nuisance signals out right after distributing them on different occasions. But it tends to wrongly interpret K-band signal as K-band and on these occasions, it is really hard to explain why it does not accept to lock out offending signals.
It was easily alerting to phantom the Ka-band signal in the bands of 33.55 GHz and 33.40 GHz bandwidth. So in this range of bandwidth, police radar isn’t found. It’s mostly that these were multiples of a low-frequency signal. This often could be a consequence of bad signal processing. However, it was what we didn’t expect to seek in the expensive model.
Judged only by its array of features, The Escort Max 360 seems to be the best radar detectors. On the road, the Max 360 offers less value than the $449 Escort Passport 9500ix.
